It's A Kind Of Magic

Happy Saturday everyone. 
Time for another challenge at the CES Challenge Blog.
Our lovely host this week is Carrie  
and she has chosen the theme

Make it Magical or Spooky 

I admit, the theme threw me this week - several cards ended up in the bin and I'm still not entirely happy with this one.
So, I need you to enter the challenge and give me some inspiration :-)

I used an 'On the Edge, Petal Point card blank, - isn't this shape great for halloween cards?

I really don't have any Halloween images, so I googled and found this owl freebie. I used purple chalk for the night sky and a touch of yellow for the moon and finished off by running my white gel pen along some branches.
The image was then mounted onto black card with stickles silver glitter for the dots.

I love Glamour Dust, and I found a great new way to add it
 - new to me that is - you've probably all been doing this for years :-)
I used my glue pen to add a line of glue all around my DP and then just sprinkled the glamour dust on.
I sooo love having a nice big bottle of it, instead of one of those tiny, fiddly pots.
Finally I added some black pearls to the petal points. Job done :-)
